giant blue iris, Iris giganticaerulea

Giant? Indeed, as iris goes. When I took this shot I was standing on a boardwalk about 18 inches high, looking straight across at it. Taller than I am! Giant blue iris grows in southern Louisiana and maybe AL and MS, depending on who you refer to. The flower is 5 or 6 inches across. Barataria Preserve, Lafourche Parish LA, 4/15/22.
